    Works Perfectly with iPad Pro

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:

    Cons mentioned:
    Bulky, Connectors

    I ordered this hoping it would be compatible with my 2018 model iPad Pro with USB-C. The packaging does not specifically mention compatibility with iPads, but I'm happy to report that it works perfectly! On top of that, it's actually a very sturdy and high-quality cable. PROS: - Works with new iPad Pro models. - Works with my MacBook Air and Windows laptop with USB-C. - Outputs 4K resolution and audio perfectly to my 4K UHD TV. - Long, 6-foot cable allows you to control your device at a distance from your projector/monitor. - The cable itself seems very durable and should last quite a while. CONS: - The HDMI side of the cable is on the bulky side, and some users might have difficulty fitting the connector into tight spaces on monitors or TVs. The HDMI connector is also quite wide and might block adjacent ports. OVERALL: The cable works perfectly for my use cases. Just be aware of the slightly bulky HDMI connector -- though I suspect you are going to find this on pretty much every USB to HDMI adapter. Recommended!

    Excellent build and performance!

    Posted .

    This cord is exceptionally made, built of aluminum and rubber materials that would rival many options in the space. It has a thick cord that is sometimes too stiff but that could change with more use after "break-in". It follows the design language of the major competitors with white and aluminum as their color palette. The anodized aluminum housing gives the cable sophisticated appearance and the construction is not in doubt. In short, you just plug this in to your device (if OS and device supports it), and plug the other side into a display and it works. This should get many looks as it performs on par with other cords I have and use daily just with a cheaper price point. This is a BUY.

    Quite good and sturdy

    Pros mentioned:
    Connections, For laptop

    This cable works great for my Pixelbook. Love the laptop but it's small screen isn't geared for work related tasks. With this cable, I can easily hook up any monitor now. Also works great for streaming Netflix too. The cable seems pretty sturdy and well made. The HDMI connection is metal and fits into the HDMI slot pretty well. Overall, seems like a great cable and works great too.

    Good Overall

    Pros mentioned:
    For laptop

    I needed a cable for work to connect various devices to my projector. Most of those devices now have USB-C ports so my old VGA cables/adapters weren’t really cutting it anymore. Tested this out, on my laptop, iPad, and phone; worked without a hitch. The cable looks pretty durable, I’ve only had it a couple of weeks so far so kinda early to tell, but I expect it should last me for a while. Over all very happy with this. Only thing I wish is that maybe it would have come with a carrying bag/pouch. Maybe I just need to invest in a good cables storage.

    For tv

    Great cable to have on hand if you're like me and use an ultrabook that lacks an HDMI port. Cable is 6' long and handled whatever output I threw at it. I Hooked it up to both a 4k TV and a 2k monitor without issue. Construction is solid and nothing feels cheap. Supports video and audio... 'nuff said! Great cable!

    Just What I Need For Presentations w/New Laptop!

    Posted .

    Unfortunately we are in the 'in-between' time for standard ports on laptops and peripheral devices. Once again I find myself with a laptop with one type of port (USB-C) and a projector with a completely different type of port (HDMI). I went through the same thing with VGA and HDMI as well as wireless protocols back in the day. Some times it is really hard to be a road-warrior giving presentations all around the country without dragging an entire electronics store with you! Fortunately, Platinum has exactly what I need for my new laptop and one year old projector (that I begged the higher ups to get me since the other one was a back-breaker). They also had me covered with a compact USB-C power supply as well! There isn't much to say about this since it is really just a cord, but it is extremely well built and a very usable length at 8 feet. My projector is a short throw projector so I'm usually not to far from it and the screen, so 8 feet is great for my needs. The connectors are SOLID and both ends have outstanding stress relief, so I don't anticipate any wear or breakage there at all. Heck, I'll probably break first before these this thing, or at least the projector probably will! I am really impressed with the quality of the materials and build specs of the Platinum brand. For an in-house brand of Best Buy, they have put a lot of thought and engineering into making quality gear. The Platinum stuff is just as good, if not better, than a lot of first-party makers. If you are looking for a cord to connect your USB-C device with an HDMI device, you don't have to look any further than the Platinum cable. I'll be able to use this for my projector in big conference rooms or TVs in the smaller conference rooms. I'm back to being a road-warrior again!

    Must Have For USB-C Devices to HDMI Displays

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Connections, For laptop, Price
    Cons mentioned:
    Fit

    ---HIGHLIGHTS--- 4K/UHD Video Transmission, Premium High Quality Build, Attractive Aluminum Finish, Limited Lifetime Warranty ---DESIGN AND USE--- This cable is designed to transmit audio and video signals from USB-C devices to displays with HDMI inputs. It will work with any USB-C device that can output video over USB-C. It is rated to carry video signals up to 4K UHD. These cables are very sturdy, and it is readily apparent that they were manufactured with quality in mind. I am expecting many many years of trouble free use. It carries a limited lifetime warranty, but considering how tough theses cables appear, I can't see them breaking under normal use. I think it would take quite a bit of abuse for them to break. The HDMI side of the cable has a wide footprint that may not fit all inputs. This is something to be aware of, but It should not be an issue except in all but the narrowest of input locations. ---BOTTOM LINE--- USB-C is transitioning into the new universal standard interface. With many compact laptops no longer having a HDMI output, this cable is a must have if you need to connect your device to an HDMI display.

    I used a 24” tv as my 2nd monitor. And this cable allows me to connect my mac into it without having to disconnect my pc. I can toggle between both with an input button on the remote. Must restart the mac so it detects the cable connection. Also the 2nd screen will go black at times and will need to be reatarted. I thought it was because of the cable. But after some research i find that its a mac issue.

    Very heavy duty long USB C Gen 3 video to HDMI

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Connections

    Aluminum housing is durable and secure. The length of the cable allows front connection and then to the rear of your monitor. USB C Gen 3 rated video only ports. My Samsung spin had the correct connection and passed the video without any issues.

    Looking for connector and was initially lead astray in my google search as mini port connector kept coming up even though tha wasn't what I was looking for. It all worked out in the end, Advice is to double check that exact connector needed is what comes out fo the google search.

    This cord works just as good as the option that costs twice as much! I bought the expensive one first but lost it. I bought the cheaper alternative thinking it would pop up after buying another and it never did. Great Product!

    When the video driver of my super expensive all in one dock hasn't been updated, I needed a temporary video solution. This just worked. The refresh HZ is lower than what I was used to, but I haven't noticed it that often. Good product!

    It's a solid cable. The only issue I experience is with the USB-C plug. I'm not sure if it's my MacBook's port or the cable's plug, but the plug needs to be perfectly centered and inserted into the port. I've noticed that the connection will be interrupted if the plug is moved just a little bit.

    Used on computer that only had USB C ports for display outputs. As the ports were labeled with DP for Displayport I wasn't 100% sure this was going to work but it did. So first use was from computer to monitor. Then changed the set up to include a third which was a Sony TV. But had to use a HDMI over CatX extender to achieve. And it worked there as well. Besides it being ugly it is a perfectly working adapter cable.
